Coen brothers direct The Yiddish Policemens Union

Coen brothers add The Yiddish Policemen’s Union to their to-do List

After winning best director at the BAFTAs for No Country for Old Men, the Coen Brothers have signed on to write and direct The Yiddish Policemen’s Union. Set in Alaska, the story centres on Jewish settlers who are pressured by the US government to turn their land over to Alaskan natives. The film is an adaptation of Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It is believed the project will begin once the brothers finish work on Burn After Reading, a CIA drama starring Brad Pitt, George Clooney and John Malkovich.
